genius one hour, let passion into the concept of action
, derived from the famous "genius of Google staff training system (genius hours) in an hour" program -- Google in order to stimulate employees to make their own genius idea, promote innovation, out of 20% employees allowed a week time to plan, implement than its normal work the items of interest - it is said that the Google project 50% is created in this creative period." to the success of this project, also reiterated a truth, that is, when people are allowed to "work", they will work to increase the power. Similarly, when children are allowed to tap into their passions and develop skills that they are interested in, their actions and creativity will also be fully promoted.
therefore, "genius hour" quickly spread out in many schools in Europe and america. In traditional learning, the teacher lays down standards to plan the course. In these schools, in addition to regular courses, the school will leave some time, let the children from their own interest and enthusiasm of their topics, find their own data, their study and draw their own conclusions, their research results show to everyone." if the traditional learning, let students take to the back of the car to go, let the teacher carry them forward, "genius hour" is a key to the students, let them drive, go anywhere they want to the.

created independently: as mentioned earlier, the teacher just sits in the co pilot position, from the subject to the execution, from the finished product to the show, the students have to complete their own.
question adjustment: in the process, students should constantly sum up experience, update ideas, so that programs to more efficient direction to adjust.
writes: no matter what project the student chooses at the end, they have to work it out and see and feel it.
